Affectionately known as "Indy IV", this is the most recent of the Indiana Jones series and after a 19 year absence it returns Harrison Ford as Dr Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr to front line action. Now wiser and considerably older, Jones works against agents of the Soviet Union for a crystal skull, which holds controlling powers.
The film honours the icon rather than extends it. The movie starts slowly and a little disappointingly and there are some routine chase sequences that look staged and a little tired, but as the film moves on and the visual effects take over, the movie shines in its adventure glory with the help of vast numbers of visual effects and digital artists doing their very best to wholly entertain, which they do. - Peter Sheehan, Australian Catholic Office for Film and Broadcasting
